Challenge

Food and nutrition security in Uganda remain the fundamental challenge to human welfare. One-third of children under five years old are stunted. In southwestern Uganda where the project will be implemented, 4 in every 10 children in are stunted. Under-nutrition is an underlying cause of 60 percent of deaths for children under five. Micro-nutrient deficiencies, including in vitamin A and iron, are highly prevalent in women and children from poor households who lack dietary diversity.

Solution

Goat milk is a healthy, wholesome source of many important nutrients that poor households can not access from the range of foods available to them. This project will give each household of the 100 beneficiaries a dairy goat and support the process of breeding and enabling the rest of the households in the community acquire dairy goats. The 100 beneficiaries will be trained to keep healthy goats to ensure the project benefits the community for many years to come.

Long-Term Impact

The project will support 100 poor households rise health children with increased chances to excel in education and producing a productive labor to the community, nation and the world. The project will also boost the local economy by improving the way poor farmers rear their goats of improved milk breeds.
